7 Deadly (Make Up) Sins Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Jess from Half Girl Half Teacup to share my 7 Deadly Sins Make Up Tag!

Naturally I’m rebellious and I’ve amended the tag a bit to basically go through the 7 things I’m guilty of or terrible at doing. If we’re assigning ‘sins’, let’s be honest, they’re mostly sloth and/or the opposite of envy i.e. disdain.

Here goes!


1.Brush cleaning

I’m terrible at this. I just forget, or remember and then put off, or remember and then ignore. Brush cleaning is a chore and I just am not one of those people who religiously manages to clean their brushes. Maybe buying more brushes is the solution to ensure I have spare ones… I mean, anything to justify a purchase in my books.


2. Buying endless eyeshadows I never use

I buy eyeshadow singles all the time. I buy palates that I adore in the shops or online. Do I wear eyeshadow? Hardly ever. I need to learn to control the impulse buy.


3. Re-wearing lipsticks that dry my lips out for days simply for the colour

I find lipsticks can dry out my lips really fast. Not all of them, but some of them. They just also happen to be my favourite colours. So each time I go to apply them I think ‘don’t do this Jess’, and I do and then I moan and spend the next day madly moisturising. Some might call it self-harm.


4. Being a slightly lazy eyebrow plucker

Girls, you get me on this.


5. Judging a cat eye

You know, those ones that slightly droop down and make the wearer look like a droopy-eyed Cleopatra… not so hot. I’m a basic b*tch.


6. Going to a cheaper place to get a beauty treatment and then regretting it 

Catchy title this one. Yep, I went to some dodgy black alley way behind a strip club to get eyelash extensions. KIDDING. It was just some woman’s house, but it was cheap and my eyelashes paid the price. DON’T DO IT.


7. Occasionally skipping a full night-time routine because my pillow is everything I need in the world

I am normally quite good at my night-time routine. I ALWAYS take my make up off. Even when slightly tipsy (read: blind drunk), but the whole washing, toning, balming, moisturising thing? I sometimes just skip straight to moisturiser. I actually stand there looking at myself in the mirror thinking ‘how many times can I skip this to the point where it makes a difference to my wrinkles in 30 years time…’ in 30 years time I imagine the answer will be ‘never Jess’, but we’ll see. I’m a risk taker.


There you have it – judge away!

Now I’m sure I’m not alone in this girls, what are your 7 Deadly Sins?

I tag Emma, Chloe and Hannah next! Make sure to check out their blogs because they’re all amazing and the sweetest girls ever!

    Hahaha I love this post. I’m actually terrible at anything beauty routine ways. Or actually anything beauty wise. It’s only really the last few years I’ve actually got into make up and trying to look half decent. Rather than just smoother my face in it.

    But yes yes yes to most of your sins. The makeup brush one is the bane of my life.
